Given the reputation of vacation photos, I wouldn’t be surprised if nobody actually likes these Comic Con photo dumps, but it’s easy content and my buffer has been dwindling lately.
I still want to see an expanded Kung Fury that has an extended Barbariana arc where Thor has a kaiju fight with mecha-Jormungandr and Kung Fury beats up an evil wizard. Maybe some more Hackerman stuff, too.
I found these two separately. Not sure if they came together.
Emperor’s New Groove was a huge departure in style for a Disney animated film, but it’s one of the best movies they ever made.
I was more worn out and less zealous about chasing down Harleys this year, which is part of the reason why there’s only six, but I think the costume might finally be on the way out.
There was no Salt Lake Comic Con in 2020, obviously, but they booted things back up for 2021. The vaccine had come out a month ago, and everyone was cautiously creeping out of their bunkers with masked faces and little band-aids on their arms from the booster shots. It’s still not really clear to me whether or not this kind of thing was a good idea for society, but I had firmly secured a fulltime job making D&D books for Kickstarter at that point, which meant it was very easy for me to quarantine for two weeks both before and after these kinds of events, so any covid that bodyhopped into me hoping to jump into a new host later on was in for a rude surprise even if my shiny new antibodies turned out to be asleep at the wheel.
I didn’t end up posting any pictures, though, so let’s drop them here to get us caught up before I move on to 2022.
Continuing our trend of people not taking the pandemic seriously. Avatar is always a reliable source of good group costumes.
And the Harley Quinn round-up clocks in at thirteen Harleys. Suicide Squad Harleys are no longer even a plurality of the set, with only 3 Squad Harleys compared to 4 BTAS Harleys (7 if you count a couple of bikini Harleys that use the BTAS symbols and color scheme).
There was no FanX in 2018. Well, there sort of was. Originally, the Salt Lake Comic Con ran in September and the Salt Lake FanX, run by the same people, ran in April. The San Diego Comic Con sued them, and after several years, the courts somehow came to the conclusion that the San Diego Comic Con could trademark a name they had made no effort to protect for decades. So the 2018 September convention was called FanX, but I still call it the Comic Con, partly because that court decision was bonkers and partly because I don’t want to specify between FanX Spring 2019 and the upcoming FanX Fall 2019. So we’re calling the fall event Comic Con, and these photos come from FanX.
